Abstract
The U.S. Army is the owner and operator of the world"s largest fleet of ground vehicles. Despite substantial interest in hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) technologies, there are no tactical HEVs in the military today. One limitation is that most commercially available ultracapacitor systems have difficulty meeting the challenging requirements associated with Army HEV applications, sufficiently high energy density in particular. To address this need, ADA proposes the use of low cost nanostructured electrodes and ionic liquid electrolytes for advanced ultracapacitors that will enable increased power and energy density and inherently safer operation.
